In the last week, the Easton Police Department has received several complaints from residents of checks stolen from their mailboxes. The checks were written and left in their mailbox with the flag up for pickup by the mail carrier. In some instances, the checks were modified and then cashed. Easton Police urge all residents to use a USPS drop box when mailing any checks. Leaving the flag up on a mailbox is a clear indication that there is something inside. Any suspicious activity should be reported to Easton Police at 203-268-4111.
